SOA Demands Broad Skills and Experience for Enterprise Architects Across Technology and Politics, Says Open Group Panel Defining the role of enterprise architects (EAs) in the context of services-oriented architecture (SOA) is more than an esoteric exercise. It helps also define the major shifts under way with SOA in enterprises and large organizations about how IT is managed. To help better understand the shifting requirements for personnel and leadership in EA and SOA, listen to this podcast discussion recorded at the 19th Annual Open Group Enterprise Architect's Practitioners Conference on July 22, 2008, in Chicago. We discuss the role and impact of skills and experience for EAs in both the public sector and the private sector. Our panel of experts and guests includes Tony Baer, senior analyst at Ovum; Eric Knorr, editor-in-chief of InfoWorld; Joe McKendrick, SOA blogger and IT industry analyst; Andras Szakal, the chief architect at IBM's Federal Software Group, and David Cotterill, head of innovation at the U.K. Government Department for Work and Pensions. Moderation is by Dana Gardner of Interarbor Solutions. Read a full transcript of the podcast: Sponsor: The Open Group.
